Sunderland VLB (or Roker VLB as it was) was formed in 1877. Throughout the years the team has been involved in the saving of over 800 life using the Breeches buoy. Perhaps the most memorable was the grounding of the Adelfotis II where the Brigade assisted in the rescue of 23 Greek seamen shipwrecked in a 50mph gale and heavy seas.
